The month of October is “Dog Adoption Month.”

During the month of October, dogs and puppies at the shelter will have an adoption fee of $55 each. This fee includes spaying/neutering, the first round of shots, a microchip and worming, for each dog adopted. This is a reduced fee with the remainder paid by the Humane Society of Beaufort County. For more information, call 252-946-1591.

Those interested in adopting a pet should inquire at the Betsy Bailey Nelson Animal Control Facility, 3931 U.S. Highway 264 East, from 1 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturdays. Because of overcrowded conditions, the animals listed are only available as indicated.

All adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. To see more animals available for adoption, visit, visit ENC Shelter Dogs, ENC Shelter Cats and Washington Cat Rescue on Facebook or call 252-946-4517 for more information. The Humane Society of Beaufort County can also be found on Facebook at



This gorgeous 2-year-old, bi-color girl is stunning in her American shorthair coat, with design patterns created in pristine white and jet black. Her huge eyes are truly an amazing feature, looking like very pale yellow-green crystal. Reann is very loving, affectionate, calm, gentle and friendly, and she will make a wonderful pet, friend and companion in a variety of good, forever home settings. For more photos, visit Shelter Cats/ID#1775. Come visit Reann, she will be available through next Saturday.


Handsome, friendly, playful and an attentive people pleaser, that’s our Max. At 1 year old, this Retriever-mix is large, gentle, affectionate and a lover of tummy rubs. Max became homeless when his owner lost his house due to Hurricane Matthew. Now Max needs a good forever home with owner(s) willing to give him a little basic obedience training, exercise in a fenced area or on leash and love and attention. Max will be a wonderful addition in a variety situations but he will do best as the only pet in the household. For more photos and video on Max, visit Shelter Dogs/ID#1859. Come in and visit Max — he’s available through the following Saturday at the shelter.
